Ph.D Mechanical Engineering

Our department has a distinguished record in both teaching and research. Faculty members have excellent academic credentials and are highly regarded. There are about 30 full-time faculty members in the department, many of whom have worthy industrial experience and many are members of the IEI, ISTE etc. The research culture is developed under the guidance of 3 Doctorate (Ph.D.) and 27 ME/M-Tech faculty members.
The class rooms with ICT tools and Wi-Fi facilities are available in the department. The department has well equipped laboratories and excellent computing facilities. The department has excellent computing facility with advanced software in CAD-CAM laboratory like CATIA, Creo, ANSYS, and Nastran etc. The additional equipment or setup are also developed in the laboratory through projects and research work in the department. The total investment in the department is Rs.1.75 Cr.
The department has 18 fully equipped laboratories and 02 research labs are supervised by experienced teachers. Through the experimentation students gets practical knowledge enhancing the learning gathered in the classroom. In addition to well established Workshop and Conventional Engineering Labs, there are modern Labs like Mechatronics Lab, CAD/CAM/CAE Lab, and CNC Trainer machine. For the research and development activities students are effectively using the major equipment’s like stir casting furnace, Vibration analyser etc. Besides well-equipped laboratories the department possesses new rare equipment's like mutli-cylinder diesel engine with latest features in internal combustion Engine laboratory, measuring instruments Measurement Lab and 3-D printing in Mechatronics Laboratory.
The department organizes on regular basis different seminars, workshops, and many other short terms Value addition courses like CATIA, Creo, and ANSYS etc. as well. Through such interactions the department has been quite successful in keeping abreast with new and emerging technologies. The department also organizes on regular basis Industry Visits to power stations, companies and factories to build up good foundation for the students in the areas of power generation, air conditioning, automobile engineering, gear manufacture, press tool and jig design, metrology etc.
To raise initiative, creativity, talent, leadership and the capability to adopt new technologies, we encourage our students for participating in the National Events like Solar Championship, BAHA competitions where students have to design, manufacture and drive solar vehicle. Also students are participating in Project exhibition like University Level “Avishkar” and DIPEX competition. In the year 2015, our team won the prize for best acceleration and hill-climb events. We also encourage students to participate and organize technical events, seminar and workshops conducted through Mechanical Engineering student Association [MESA].
The department has had revealed a great deal of industry goodwill owing to its continuous interaction with industry for mutual sharing of the academic-industry experiences. At Mechanical Engineering Department, we plan to develop this MoUs with local and regional industry and improve the image of the department to a broader academic community. Students of final year level are doing their engineering projects in various industries including National chemical Laboratory [NCL] Pune, Spartan Technologies Ltd., Leena Engineering works, Precision camshaft, SV tech engineering consultant pvt. Ltd. Pune etc.
Several of the graduates who have passed out as mechanical engineer are occupying responsible positions in various Engineering Industries, Government & Semi Government Organizations or are pursuing higher studies in the premier educational institutes in and outside India. Mechanical Engineering is a broad ranging and intellectually demanding discipline involving emerging technology and professional skills. The department of mechanical engineering at SKNCOE provides high-quality learning opportunities that fully prepare students for a career as a globally competent professional engineer. Mechanical engineering department has a diverse and successful student population and the students from the department are well placed in famous organizations during past few years. The prominent among these are: TATA Motors, TE Connectivity, Accenture, Cognizant, Advik Hi-Tech, TEK Components, TCS, RSB Transmission Pune, Mahindra CIE Automotive, Pune etc.
